Back to bases …Posted: February 21, 2015
To date I have based almost all of my Del Prado pre-painted 25/28mm-scale Napoleonic Prussian infantry figures (I have three spare figures) and prepared my Prussian artillery figures for basing … and today I have been touching up any damage on my Prussian cavalry figures prior to varnishing them later this evening. With luck I will be able glue them to their bases at some point during tomorrow morning, and once the glue has cured I will then finish them off by painting the bases with Humbrol Matt Grass Green enamel paint.
I have been working on the slow-burn, non-priority project for some weeks (since 5th February, to be precise), doing little bits as and when I could. As a result I have not suffered from that lack of interest or lethargy that sometimes strikes when one is working on a large project, and I have made better progress than I hoped that I would.
Once the Prussians are finished I hope to move on to the ‘odds and sods’ that form part of my collection. These include Brunswickers (all infantry) and Dutch-Belgians (Belgian infantry and Dutch cavalry), both of whom fought on the Allied side at Waterloo.
